Cookie Fair

Time to start the holiday baking!!!

Did those exclamation points sell you on how excited I am about baking? ‘Cause that’s a lie. Not a fan. Not even a little bit.

But I know that other people love it, and I also know that everyone expects sweet treats for parties and such. Here are links to the blog’s best cookie and sweet treat recipes:

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies {The Reluctant Hippie}Chocolate Sandwich Cookies: Roll them in candy cane pieces and watch them disappear. The cookies are a little soft, so they tend to stick together – don’t stack them on the plate! I got this recipe from my friend Debi. It’s a winner!


Mocha Chocolate Crumbles


Mocha Crumble Cookies: Delicate, crumbly texture with the rich flavors of chocolate and coffee.

Coconut Macaroons: I love these cookies so much!



Gluten-Free Chocolate Coconut Bars {The Reluctant Hippie}
